current work


It's no secret, I've been horrible about updating lately. Instead of re-running old posts, I thought I'd give everyone a little reading. Below is a recap of the work I've been up to in the past month or so. I may not be putting together a ton of content for Numie, but I promise, I've been making the magic happen somewhere. 

Lilah Nick & The House of the Setting Sun
Home tour with two talented artists and makers. They constructed a summer home with their own two hands, and it has an entire wall made from found windows so they can watch the sun set each night. This post also includes an interview with Lilah that - I hope - will fill you with as much inspiration as I felt meeting her and her beau in person.

Chilled Pea & Garlic Scape Soup
Adam & I constructed this refreshing recipe for our friends at Greensgrow. It's zesty, lemony, and perfect for hot weather.
Food & Ferments: The Kombucha & Beet Kvass Experts
I highlighted one of my favorite local Philadelphia vendors, Food & Ferments, for the Free People blog. Get a peek into their world + basic Kombucha and Beet Kvass how-to's.

DIY Fresh Flower Wreath
I let my hands get busy with some of nature's most beautiful objects, and wrote up a step-by-step for trying out the project yourself.

Recipe: Ginger Kohlrabi Slaw
This is a recipe that I got obsessed with making when kohlrabi was plentiful in the CSA. I brought it to a 4th of July party, and was later told by a friend that he had a, "coming to jesus moment," while eating it. Enough said?

DIY Sunglasses Case
I've been using this little bag like crazy - both for sunglasses and my cell phone. I love it. The bonus? It is a great use for scrap fabric. 

Blueberry, Peach, & Ginger Fruit Leather
Another recipe that Adam & I pulled together for the Greensgrow blog. This one is great for brining along on a summer hike. It's lightweight, won't squish, and tastes mighty great after a long day of walking through the woods.

Greensgrow Instagram
While I haven't been doing it as much as before, I've still been contributing to the Greensgrow Instagram from time to time. Be sure to follow along if you're interested in urban farming, gardening, farm-to-table, or artisinal foods. 
Now, I'd love to see some of the work you all have been doing. I'm finding that most of you are pretty darn inspiring, and I'd love to get to know you better. Leave a comment below and tell me what you're up to!


  1. Wow, you have been busy! Beautiful photographs all -- and lovely stories =)

  2. I find your work and your blog so inspiring. I don't even remember how I stumbled upon your site, but I am glad I bookmarked it and visit frequently.
    And I was so excited to see that the beautiful wildflowers you used in the DIY flower wreath came from upstate New York because my husband and I are getting ready to relocate there. We've been living in the Southwestern desert which is lovely in its own right, but I'm ready for lush green everywhere I look. I've missed an abundance of wildflowers.
    So lovely.

  3. Ashley - You are going to love it in upstate. It's such an underrated corner of the country. The land is lush, lakes are everywhere, and it never gets unbearably hot. The area isn't flashy, just beautiful and relaxing. Good luck with the move and thank you so much for the kind words on my work. xx
